About Us

Devoted to American Farmers Regenerating the Land

We are a farmer first company focused on providing farmers, ranchers, and the food and agricultural community education, Regeneratively GrownTM and Regenerative VerifiedTM verification, regenerative agriculture and soil health consulting and research and design.  We rebel against the "farm the farmer" mentality and are dedicated to providing the resources farmers need to be profitable all the while improving the land.

Our Story

It all started with a road trip.  After over a year of being isolated due to Covid, we all finally came together again for a soil health tour of the South, Midwest and Great Plains.  We went home with the conviction that NOW is the time to really put our passion for regenerative ag and commitment to farmers to work.......together.

Russell and Liz have a diverse skill set that perfectly complements each other.  Together we are the #regenrebels, breaking away from the traditional industrial ag and food system.  From how to set up a planter, to soil testing, to carbon markets and farmer direct marketing, we have it all.  And combined with our team of consultants, our practical knowledge ranges from ranching, row-crop farming to hemp production.

We believe that the foundation of agriculture starts from the ground up with soil/plant interactions.  The dynamic biological interactions within the soil provide the key to crop health and profitability.  Regenerative Agriculture enhances soil function, leading to soil health and crop resilience.  Through education and boots on the ground consulting, the team at Soil Regen can assist you on your journey, from beginning to end.
